A recommendation to Google

We appreciate the new gaming feature and the social gamers are going to love it. However there is a huge population like us doesn’t care too much about games. It is once of the things we didn’t like in facebook. It was too distracting and intrusive – messages above game points, requests to join, blah blah. According to the current google plus UI refer above screenshot looks like the game has it’s own tab and looks non distractive. However it would be even better if we can have a google+ account setting where we can turn on/off entirely the gaming or any new upcoming feature,  people who are only interested in certain features will go and enable them. This would convince all types of users and make google+ a happy place. Hope google will listen and implement this functionality.
